I simply cannot believe a recent writer and far too many other Republicans are supporting President Donald Trump after his sociopathic attack on a disabled reporter and others at campaign rallies around the country during his run for the presidency.

Gordon Sondland, a million-dollar contributor to President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee and hand-picked EU ambassador, testified this week that he wasn’t a note taker and couldn’t even get his own emails and other records to prepare for his hearing — in spite of the fact he is still a …

One would think that if a person spent more than 30 years in education, they would have a pretty solid grasp on civics. This apparently isn’t the case for former Owosso High School Principal Roger Elford. Otherwise, you’d think he would know the difference between an enumerated right and a p…

In answer to a recent letter, unless the writer has ever driven a school bus, do not judge the school bus driver for the kids’ behavior. You have no idea what a difficult job it is to drive in traffic. You can’t be looking in the mirror all the time and the kids know this. Most of them have …

I would like to thank the Shiawassee County commissioners for naming the new county building the Gary W. Holzhausen Drain Commission and Utility Building.

Regarding my comparison of presidents Donald Trump and John F. Kennedy in a recent letter to the editor, it was my intent to compare the two only in their common lack of a need to prosper from their presidency: both wealthy, neither susceptible to the corrupting influences that so many Washi…

This is a dismal time of the year. I am not referencing autumn, which is increasingly the most wonderful and salubrious of our seasons. I am also not thinking of the measure of dread we must all experience in degree with the looming onset of the holidays and the polar vortex.

Many of you have seen the SATA buses around the county and may not know how they operate. I’m from New Haven Township and have gotten involved in the process of what it takes for a township to participate in SATA.

“May you live in interesting times” This, supposedly an ancient, ironic Chinese curse, is more English than anything. That does not mean it doesn’t work, in any language.

When I was growing up, my parents voted regularly for Republicans. The Republican party, I knew, was fiscally responsible. As conservatives, they believed in a strong national defense, and they worked closely and honorably with our allies around the world.

It is outrageous! It is unconscionable! It is, unsurprisingly, another slander by our pretender president.

In spite of the unending ridicule of President Donald Trump by the usual Democratic letter writers, the media and the Democratic Party, many citizens reject this irrational campaign and will legally elect him again.

At the end of June 2019, Right to Life of Michigan launched a statewide petition drive to ban dilation and extraction abortions in the state of Michigan. The dilation and evacuation is the most commonly used procedure during the second trimester of a mother’s pregnancy to terminate the life …

The citizens of the United States need to be aware that insurance companies, their CEOs and others who make billions of dollars from the sickness of our families, friends and neighbors do not want real health care reform and will do almost anything to keep it from happening.

I agree with a recent letter writer who said all candidates for any office should be required to make their taxes public for their entire working lives by law.

The newspaper reported GM is close to a new contract. The union also sought sweeter retirement benefits. Is that for the retirees or for the auto workers?

I am a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I must say I was disappointed in our community leaders as they promoted Oktoberfest in Owosso by promoting the drinking of alcoholic beverages.

Weaknesses in our democracy are being exposed, daily. President Donald Trump has, all by himself, been allowed to upend order in the Mideast, leading to Turkey marching into Syria against our allies, the Kurds, and our shameful abandonment of them. This has caused the Kurds to ally themselve…

Resolving at present, underneath and behind, the total rot and corruption of the Trump presidency, will be found an international conspiracy of mega grifters and potentates, spread around the globe, centered in Moscow, and operating for the last quarter century.

Reading a recent article in The Argus-Press that displayed a picture of a garage filled with full garbage bags in Owosso left me scratching my head a bit. Sometimes, one picture like that announcing that Owosso has a garbage problem can be very misleading. Possibly, they might have a zoning …

The Firefighters Memorial Fund committee’s biggest fundraiser thus far, the quarter beef raffle, came to an end Saturday night as we drew the winning tickets and called the winners to congratulate them.

The commentary Tuesday by Marion Hurdequin pointed out the ethical reasons to support action to address climate change. There are, of course, other reasons to make the personal, policy, and technological changes necessary to reduce carbon emissions.

The truth stands, starkly plain and obvious before our eyes, President Donald Trump has attempted to use funding from your U.S. tax dollars for personal political gain.

Some time ago I got an email from Monty, a good friend of mine. As a matter of fact, he is the one who hired me at the job I eventually retired from. He taught me everything I knew about that line of work and I’m forever grateful. He wrote to let me know how much he missed me and other fine …

We have a particularly chilling anniversary Oct. 2. That day marks the anniversary of the murder of Jamal Khashoogi, the Washington Post journalist and Saudi dissident, who was lured to his death and assassinated, on orders of the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman.

The “In Your Opinion” letter of Sept. 16, titled “Trump can change the weather by fiat,” was a little more than a cunning deception of attempted satire. For what purpose?

In his rebuttal to my Sept. 11 submission regarding Republican culpability for failing to debate — let alone pass — a Democratic bill proposing universal gun sale background checks, the writer couldn’t seem to grasp the relationship of the “Cheney argument” (regarding the urgency of safeguar…

It is clear that many have caught on to the common sense message of Elizabeth Warren: The system is rigged and we have to fix it. The hijacking of the economy by the financial elites and global corporations has been going on for 40 years.

On behalf of the Shiawassee County Homeless Coalition’s Project Connect Committee, I would like to thank several members of this Community for their participation in our annual Project Connect Aug. 27.

In response to a letter Aug. 12, headlined, “Trolls show themselves to be dim-witted creatures,” my letter on Aug. 5 was presenting statistical facts about teenage pregnancy.

In the run-up to the post 9/11 invasion of Iraq, former Vice President Dick Cheney argued that if a single American life was at risk from Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, the war would be totally justified.
